3-Step Framework for a COVIDsafe Australia.
The Australia Government has implemented a 3-step framework to assist States and Territories in relaxing restrictions. The community is encouraged to;
- Maintain 1.5m distancing
- Maintain good hygiene
- Stay home if unwell
- Frequently clean and disinfect communal areas
- COVIDsafe plan for workplaces and premises
The steps are all subject to expert health advice and can be implemented based on the current COVID-19 conditions in each State and Territory.
- STEP 1: The important first small steps - connect with friends and family - allowing groups of people to be together in homes and in the community. Businesses reopen, and more people return to work.
- STEP 2: Building on slightly larger gatherings and more businesses reopening. Higher risk activities may have tighter restrictions.
- STEP 3: A commitment to reopening of business and the community with minimal restrictions, but underpinned by COVIDsafe ways of living.
Our primary concern is the health and safety of our community and visitors. Please be vigilant in personal hygiene, social distancing and stay home if you are feeling unwell. Take care of yourself and our community's most vulnerable.
